Jack Watson Ranch Ibex (sunrise)
Utah

Jack Watsons Ibex Ranch.  A dam to hold back water for the ranch.  Jack Watson occupied the ranch by himself from 1890 to 1930 raising cattle and sheep.  

A great book telling the history of the area is: Hiking, Climbing & Exploring Utah's Jack Watson's Ibex Country:  The life stories of Jack Watson and Bob Stinson, history of Ibex and West Desert.

    Great photo(s), thanks! I'm reading the Kelsey book you mention as I write this, and planning my visit to Ibex. A fantastic bit of history about Utah's west desert.
